Staff overview

LCCH International Faculty

All our lecturers are experienced clinical hypnotherapists from diverse backgrounds, who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to your training.


My great passion is to enable my clients to take control of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours when facing stressful experiences and life’s stressors. My motivation originally came from my journey caring for my wife and helping her overcome cancer.

The transition from hotel management to studying psychotherapy, complementary therapies and hypnotherapy was a natural progression as a direct result from my role as a carer. I have worked in the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) field for over twenty years. I am able to combine the different therapeutic approaches to personalise my treatments for my clients.

In order to share my skills, I volunteered as a therapist at Mind in Greenwich and as a clinical hypnotherapist in the Oncology Unit at St Georges’ Hospital. I served as a member on my local residents’ association for many years, developing and promoting neighbourhood events.

Encouraged by colleagues and friends to utilise my teacher training qualification, and my extensive experience and knowledge as a specialist lecturer teaching students at a range of colleges to both further education and degree levels, I co-founded and am Vice Principal of LCCH International college, we train students in clinical hypnotherapy to promote wellbeing and healing, thus raising the profile of hypnotherapy within the CAM field. I am a Fellow of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.

There is tremendous power within us, the power to be free from our anxieties, to be free from our depression, from our limiting beliefs and within every single one of us there is omnipotent power to completely transform our lives. Hypnosis is something that has completely transformed me as a person and has opened the way to tapping into amazing potentials which were within myself that I never thought was possible. My dream is to show everyone that within themselves lies an incredible source of power which can cause liberation from all forms of suffering. Hypnosis is a powerful tool that has just done that for me. Alongside my journey into Hypnosis, I have learnt from many spiritual masters from the east and west. These teachings I incorporate as a daily way of living and have enriched my hypnosis and the way I have helped my clients and teach the fundamental tools of self-transformation.

Priya is a practising hypnotherapist and tutors for LCCH I.

She favours the eclectic pluralistic approach to hypnotherapy, using a client centred combination of psychodynamic and cognitive approaches. She incorporates trauma and anxiety management including EMDR.

Priya started her journey in becoming a hypnotherapist when working in the field of physical therapy and uses a more esoteric approach. Her experience as a physical therapist helped highlight the deep connection between mind and body and how the condition of both have a profound effect on the way each other function.

The esoteric aspect of trance and altered states of consciousness, whether induced by religious ritual, tribal shamanic practice or meditation and spiritual pursuits, become the subject Priya chose to study to complete her MSc in clinical hypnotherapy .

Regaining personal power and being able to take responsibility for one’s self can truly set a client on the road to freedom.
